SEI scope mounts are basically copies of the Brookfield three point mount and work well. Keep in mind that the scope mount boss and splines on the M1A are not always concentric with the rest of the rifle.

Thanks Ted. I currently have a gen. 3 SA Inc. aluminum mount. It has degraded (18 years old) to where it comes loose so often I don't know if it will be on target or not unless I check the screws for looseness, which is aggravating. I am looking at the Sadlak steel and Airborne, ARMS #18, and the Smith. The Bassett Machine is also a contender, but I think I want a fixed mount.

I can vouch for the ARMS 18, a little loctite helps too.

My friend also has the ARMS 18 and likes it.

If you are looking for recommendations my choice is Sadlak. I prefer the way they lock the clip guide adaptor in place and the four models they make. Not the least expensive, but they are consistently high quality.

Rgr. on the quality of the Sadlak mount.
Unlike the old Brookfield mounts, they are much more stable as Ted has mentioned.
The locking solid into the clip dog makes all the difference in the world, a vast improvement over the original BKFLDs which were prone to slipping and sliding and in some cases had to be welded to the receivers on M14s for stability.

I went with the Smith Enterprises mount. Zeroed the rifle Sunday evening and I think it is a good mount. Thanks for all the replies and recommendations. Allen
